How To Get Away With Murder's Liza Weil has filed for divorce from her husband of nine years, Scandal vet Paul Adelstein, citing irreconcilable differences.
The couple met at a playwright's conference when they were cast in the same play. Adelstein stated that when he met Weil, he was immediately taken by her and even looked her up on imdb.com, according to American Jewish Life Magazine. They married in October 2006 in a Reformed Jewish ceremony.
The couple has appeared together in three projects: the short film Order Up in 2008,the crime-comedy Little Fish, Strange Pond and the Michael Shannon and Amy Ryan helmed movie, The Missing Person, both in 2009.
Both Weil and Adelstein are Shondaland's darlings, having appeared on most of Shonda Rhimes' shows. Adelstein, who now stars in Bravo series Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce, appeared on Grey's Anatomy, had a recurring role as the tenacious Leo Bergen in Scandal and was a series regular in the now extinct Private Practice. Liza Weil had guest roles in episodes of Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and Private Practice, and now plays Annalise Keating's fiercely dedicated associate, Bonnie Winterbottom, in How To Get Away With Murder. Having just wrapped up season 2 of the Viola Davis-led drama, Weil will reprise her role as Rory Gilmore's Chilton and Yale BFF, the overbearing, energetic and smart Paris Geller in the Gilmore Girls revival on Netflix.
According to court documents, Weil and Adelstein have been separated since January 15, 2016. They have one five-year-old daughter together, Josephine Adelstein, and state that they plan to share joint custody.
Coincidentally, Liza Weil's How To Get Away With Murder co-star, Charlie Weber, also filed for divorce on February 25, 2016, after less than a year of marriage. Weber, who plays Frank Delfino in the ABC hit, and his wife were married in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on April 21, 2015. Weber lists February 1, 2016 as the date of the couple's separation.
